General Studies Programs
Develop a wide range of knowledge and skills with the general studies program from UB.
AA, AS, BS in General Studies Degree Programs
Three degree programs are offered through the UB General Studies program: Associate in Arts (AA), Associate in Science (AS) and Bachelor of Science (BS) in General Studies. These general studies programs offer maximum flexibility to explore curricula of the different undergraduate programs at the University.
In the BS in General Studies program, you will work with an academic advisor to design an academic program tailored to your specific needs and goals. For example, you might combine a business studies concentration that focuses on marketing and management with a minor in mass communications, or combine a social sciences concentration that focuses on psychology and sociology with a human services minor. The natural sciences and mathematics concentration is frequently used to fulfill the science prerequisites for graduate study in the health professions, leaving you room to explore the undergraduate curriculum in the humanities, social sciences, and human services.
The BS in General Studies is an excellent option for transfer students since it allows the maximum number of free electives permitted by the University. Program graduates have attended business, law, and medical school. Many have gone on to careers in education, human services, and community service. This program is offered at our main Bridgeport campus, as well as the Waterbury Center location.
